Running an Ad Blocker on Router/Firewall. On my Ubuntu 22.05 any browser (Mozilla, Chrome) just clears the area where the ad was at. Starting to use Windows 10 and all browsers leave a mess where the ad was. Mostly error message "...hmmm were having trouble finding that site..". Hope there is a way to clean that up with Windows as well.

I do not care about MSNBC, I just want to know why I cannot live stream on MSNBC in case I run in to other channels that may not work I would like to solve the issue or I guess I can just uninstall Firefox and call it a day if it is just the browser.

The audio does work, but the video is the start up or splash photo for MSNBC

Firefox will stream on NBC and I can stream MSNBC using Chrome and Edge.

I resent all of the setting in Firefox to default, and I turned off all of the extensions.

I have an extension called Gesturefy that allows you to use mouse gestures to do things like navigate through tabs, perform searches, etc. The problem is that on Mozilla pages, these gestures are not allowed for security reasons, as the developer explains: "Gesturefy does not work on Mozilla related pages like addons.mozilla.org, internal pages like about:addons or other add-on option pages (e.g. moz-extension://*). This is because Firefox restricts add-ons from accessing these pages for security reasons."

Is it possible to disable these restrictions for this specific extension or in general?

Within the Add-on Manager by clicking Manage Extension Shortcuts - you can make shortcuts for add-ons to perform specific functions via the buttons on your keyboard, but I want to actually be able to use the buttons on my actual mouse rather than the keyboard.

Does anybody know if this is possible? Currently when I try to use my mouse to input a 'shortcut' in the 'Type a shortcut' box nothing works.

Are there any about:config settings or add-ons that can enable me to use my Mouse to make shortcuts for my add-ons?

Hi. The annual NORAD Santa Tracker website does not function properly under Firefox. While there are no issues with the 3D rendering itself, the 3D map is squished vertically toward the left side of the page. It appears to be defaulting to a mobile browser view. The only extension I have installed is uBlock Origin, and I turned it off for the NORAD Santa website, and the display issue persists.

Opening the site under Safari shows the Santa tracker taking up the entire browser window as it should do.

I'm currently on Mac OS Sonoma using the latest version of Firefox 121.0

Just recently, within the last two weeks (today is 12/22/23) Firefox it taking a long time to start. Firefox version is 121.0 (64 Bit) Windows 11 Home Ver: 22H2, OS Build 22621.2861 This is a reasonably new Acer Nitro PC (August 2023) with a solid state drive.

When I double click the Firefox Icon a large white box opens on my PC and remains that way for 10-15 seconds, then the white box fills-in with the Firefox screen. Once opened, Firefox works perfectly.

I tried the troubleshooter and Firefox starts instantly, as it did previously. I have no Extensions, Themes, or Plugins. I even disabled: OpenH264 Video Codec and Widevine Content Decryption Module. I tried Google and DuckDuck as the Search engine with no difference.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 (20XY005MGE) with Win11 Pro.

All of a sudden, Firefox does not play any sound. I notice that it does not show up in the volume mixer. I tried:

Youtube does not play sounds, the Spotify page notices that it cannot play sound (the spotify App for Windows works fine, though). News sites (tagesschau.de / video, deutschlandfunk.de / audio) play the video, but no sound.

I had the problem a few months ago already but I cannot recall the solution :(

Thanks for helpful hints!

Hi everyone,

so I just started firefox on windows 10 and updated it to version 121 and after that all my saved passwords are gone. Completly. Tried to restore them over my ios firefox but because of the sync feature it had already replaced the saved passwords there too. What is odd, that I am still logged in on couple of websits but the login data for them is nowhere to be found... Ofc I don't have any backup so I am probaly screwed here. I don't understand how that could happen in the first place... Has someone else experienced this or mabye has any advice how to resolve this? Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards Fabian

After i moved to another location and getting now internet via fiber and via fritz!-router 7530 i have issues with readability in many cases: Google News, Mailbox at GMX. To the 7530 my notebook is normally connected via WLAN. Text is in places often not shown, or colored in black or green or magenta, Images are often in places or complete filled with flicker (white, green, magenta, black). I suspected the WLAN connection and searched and read the ffox-help und tried some things, but nothing helped. Using a long cable from 7530 to nb has no effect.

Firefox displays text on the .xml page as html code instead of rendering is as normal text. The layout and images on the page look as they should.

There is nothing wrong with the page, as it is rendered perfectly in Chrome.

In addition, this page doesn't display at all on the phone. When I click on the link it asks me to download it and then asks me which app I want to open it with - instead of simply rendering the page.

I have seen some old threads on this topic, it looks like this issue haven't been resolved for few years.

My question is not just about fixing it in my browser but at the root cause. This page is the RSS feed of my podcast which many people want to access and many use Firefox as their browser. Unless I tell everyone to use Chrome instead.

Can someone help? thanks.

Using Firefox View, I am unable to view my tabs from other devices after setting up Sync. It is saying Check your internet connection. If you’re using a firewall or proxy, check that Firefox has permission to access the web. as if I don't have a correctly configured connection. However I indeed do and am able to browse the web without any issues. I should mention that I'm running the latest stable flatpak and I'm wondering if this could be related but I have no idea how to manipulate the flatpak to make this work.
